WIP Wednesday

Little by little I am still working on projects.  This is one of the busy seasons at work right now.  I'll be in demand until the end of May.  Here's what I did get done this week:

I got this much put together in this little Christmas quilt that will be a donation quilt for the H2H charity -- Jack's Basket.  It needs a border and then quilted and finished at 36" square.



I put nine blue blocks together for another H2H charity quilt for Jack's Basket.  I will put it on the longarm next.  At 36" square, it shouldn't take long to quilt.


Then I put together ANOTHER little quilt for H2H -- Jack's Basket.  I'm just going to keep using orphan blocks and make little 36" quilts and stuff as many as I can in a set postage box.




I had a little setback of a coffee spill on my stitch-a-long project.  Luckily it washed out the next day.  I'm back to stitching peacock feathers, on a smaller scale since the ada cloth had shrinkage.  



There are a lot of owls flying in blog land right now.  Here's one I did this week for the RSC.  There will be another one coming on Saturday -- stay tuned.  I'm starting to pose them differently.



I found the picture of sample cards.  I won these cards in 2012 and loved them.  I love to send cards.  I'll be making another set of these.  This pattern is from the book Quilts for Scrap Lovers by Judy Gauthier.  The original block size was 15.5", but I made it more Accuquilt die friendly for me.



I currently have 74 on-going projects.
